The Week(s) That Was

I hope everyone had a great (and safe) new year. Things have been busy here so I have to apologize for missing last week’s post of the week.

So let’s get down to it, shall we?

Recently poker player and writer Tony Korfman was banned from the Bellagio after strangling a player during the $1,000 re-buy second chance event. Korfman has authored several poker strategy books. Which of the below is the actual title of one of the chapters in his books?

a) “Take that your punk bastard”
b) “You think Dutch Boyd is unstable? Check this out.”
c) “Ways to get yourself banned for life from a poker room”
d) “Table Image – How to make your opponent fear you”

If you’re writing a poker story and you run out of things to say, which of the following is appropriate:

a) Just make some stuff up
b) Find a trusted and respectable authority figure to comment on the story
c) Can the story
d) Quote one of your own reporters like Gambling911 has done on numerous occasions

If you are only interested in short-term results and have a death wish for your business, do you:

a) Fix the business model
b) Ignore the problem
c) Cry
d) Start ejecting players for being too good.

Joke of the Week

A homeless man asks another man for two dollars. The man says “Will you use the money to buy booze?” The homeless man replies “No sir, I don’t drink.” The man then asks “Will you use the money to gamble?” The homeless man replies “No sir, I don’t gamble.” So the man says “Do me a favor and come home with me. I want my wife to see what happens to a man who doesn’t drink or gamble.”
